KAILWAY IN HANDS
Effective February 15th, Gor
don C. Carson and W. B. Veazey,
Receivers, (Mr. Veazey in active
charge) appointed by the District
Court of the United States for the
Southern District of Georgia, took
possession of all the property and
assets of the Gainesville Midland
Railway. At present, the old of
ficers and employees of the Rail-'
way retain their positions under
In discussing the situation with
Mr. Veazey, lie stated that two
things had to take place right
away, or the road could not con
tinue operation—one was the re
ductionin expenses, and the other
an increase in revenue. Every
effort is being made to bring
about both, so that it will be pos
sible to keep going. 11c does not
feel t> at the people served by the
dainsville Midland Railway really
appreciate the seriousness of the
situation, and the grave possibility
of its not being able to continue.
The public is more or less inclined
to accept the situation as a matter
of course, feeling that it v 'ill be
worked out some way, and are not
inclined to concern themselves
much about it.
Mr. Veazey states that his for-
cos are making a vigorous effort,
to secure every pound of freight to
he had, and that the people invari
ably express themselves as being
perfectly willing that the road
have the ! u.iiness, but as a matter
of fact the road is not getting it,
and cannot get it without very ac
ive co-operation of the, people, who
must insist on their routing being
respected in every case, as there
is absolutely nothing that the hail
way can do in case their routing
instructions are not complied
with. The road serves only a
small territory, and in order to
make it prosperous, it must nec
essarily secure the traffic in that
territory. Mr. Veazey feels that
all the employees are willing to do
their part in working out the situ
ation, and states that lie is very
much gratified to note the interest
being manifested along the line in
the road’s welfare at this time,
and confidently believes that if
this interest is developed into ac
tive co-operation, and everybody
will help, the Receivers will he
able to bring the property out of
its Troubles. On tlie other hand,
if these things do not take place,
there is no hope of continued oper
ation of the road, and it must ulti
mately, and possibly in a very
short while, he dismantled, in
whole or in part.
It is the purpose of the Receivers
to leave nothing undone that will
tend to improve the situation, and
overcome the present difficulties,
giving the patrons of the road the
very best possible service under
Mr. Yeazey is exceedingly anx
ious for the full support and co
operation of every patron of the
road, and certainly should, and wo
are confident will have that sup

SIT DOWN A
MINUTE AND THINK
SIZE UP YOUR CONDITION.
LOOK AT THE FACTS SQUARE
IT PAYS TO HAVE GOOD
Most Illnesses Are Prevented by a
Good Supply of Rich, Red Blood
Take Pepto-Mangan, the
Red Blood Builder
Either you are in good health or
you are not. There’s no half
way. You may think nothing of
being a little run down. It may
not worry you if you look pale.
You may think you’ll he all right
tomorrow or next day. But will
(’ertain it is when you do not
feel just right, you are not right.
There is probably something the
matter with your blood. And
while you can get around and do
you work you are leaving yourself
open to any of the diseases that
arc always waiting to take posses
sion of run down people.
When you are pale and easily
tired, when you cannot enjoy your
meals, when you lose enthusiasm,
your blood needs attention.
Take Pepto-Mangan for awhile.
It is a great tonic. It will build
up your resistance to disease, and
you will soon feci stronger. The
little red corpuscles are fighters.
They battle with disease germs
and win out when there are
(Plough of them. Keep your sys
tem well supplied. Then you will
keep well and you will enjoy life.
But be certain you get the genu
ine Pepto-Mangan. Ask for it by
the full name “Glide’s Pepto-
Mangan.” Some people take it
in tablet form. It is so conveni
ent. The liquid and the tablets
have the same medicinal value.
Look for the name “Glide’s” on
NOTICE CONCERNING THE
The Gainesville Midland Rail

W. (i. Veazey and Gordon <Car
son, as Receivers, by Judge Rev

District Court of Savannah, upon
a bill of complaint filed by llenry
G. Bradlee and others of Boston,
Mass., creditors of said company,
said suit alleging that the rail
road is insolvent, and that it sus
tained a deficit in operation for
the year of 1920 of $88,295.86,
and that the present cost of op
eration far exceeded the income.
The home office of the Midland
Railroad has always been in
Savannah, Georgia, lienee the suit
was brought in that Court.

to take charge of the railroad, and
have done so, and posted the fol

By order of the District Court
of the United States for the South

this day, the undersigned as Re
ceivers have taken possession of

W. B. Yeazey,
It is very clear that unless the
expense of the operation of the
railroad, such as cost of coal,
cross-ties, labor, etc. can be re
duced so as to keep the expenses
within the income that the Court
will undoubtedly order the road
out and dismantled, for no road
can operate at a loss of nearly
a hundred thousand dollars a
